The girl has handlers ????

If she does, maybe smaller corndogs next time...

Yeah bud.

From the outsider looking in, people are saying....'wtf? the yanks keep digging out these nutty witches as darlings of the right wing... why?  dont you have anyone sensible?'  

i think ron paul is very likeable and its depressing he's got such a battle on his hands to be heard.

it makes the right look unstable and an itchy finger on the trigger... so to speak.

it makes americans look bad

i'm not in usa.  but i like it. don't want it to go down.

...don't want it to go down. ...

What has "wanting" got to do with "facts and recurrent, mad acts and worse consequences"...please tell me that!

Do you believe in western values : primacy of fact, historic precedent, logic and economic math?

Or are you into flying unicorns and USA uber alles what ever the cost?

I know there is no viable solution to coagulate the new norm of the west but hanging on to a corrupt system that goes from bad to worse is not the answer.

The Government of the Untied States is owned by Banking and Israel which is code for the "War Machine"...


BUT! "We the People" although many are dummer than a box of rocks.. are not all bad.. most Americans would share their last meal with someone who is hungry.

BUT! the Government of America Pays Farmers (like Rockefeller and Bachmann) to not farm! or pays farmers to destroy good food to maintain a market price! instead of sending the extra or un-wanted to africa or other to feed people??? what the fuck kind of group of leaders makes that call? what kind of people are they? really??

Like I said, the Government of the Untied States is Owned by Bankers and Israel who both buy or sell or fund the American War Machine.

BUT! MOST!! almost ALL! 99.9% (becuase the top 1% of the 1% is the problem, World Wide not just here in America) of Americans are not that bad.. even the bad ones are not as bad as the top 1% of the 1%.. murders kill less people that our leaders!

Ah, the travails of Porkwoman, prepping the local brathundt with a gleam rarely seen. I so hope the telyvishun camera will ask a lot of embarassing questions now about her pork life, what's her pork like, is it like pork?  Why the brown meat then when you are out of town?  Are you submissive as pork?  Are the rejects from your hubby bubby's clinic in your in your cell phone marked secret?   Or is it a go and go situation?   Only a sow for now?  Don't oink me there if you own a dog?  You think I want 10 fat tits?

where the hell is national enquirer tv. haven't we waited long enough for real tv?

If Paul didn't come in second I would say we should give away Iowa....  I just can't beleive Bachmann won any poll, no matter how flawed.

Newt never wanted or thought he could win. He saw Palin cashing in and thought he could do it too. I bet when he walks away...he will leave a mountain of debt behind him. Pretending to run for President shouldn't be a money making endeavor.

What a bunch of sick pukes ? The Republican field is impressive ! Anyone of them would be an improvement over Obama and an asset as a leader in almost every puke country on the planet ! This cynicism is absurd ...... especially when the cynics say Obama and Pelosi and Frank aren't any worse ! Monedas 2011 I can take the whole ZH poster cluster to the wood shed ! Yeah !

voting for Ron Paul is an intellectual vote and we have a lot of work on our hands trying to fix what the government schools have successfully accomplished.
